MLB Game Preview: Detroit Tigers vs. Kansas City Royals - Date: 6/12/2019 Royals, trying to win first series since April, oppose TigersFLMThe Royals have a chance to do something they haven't done since snow was a regular part of the Kansas City weather forecast.With a come-from-behind, 3-2 victory over the Detroit Tigers on Tuesday night, the Royals have a chance to win a series for the first time since they swept a three-game set against the Cleveland Indians from April 12-14. Kansas City is 0-14-2 in its past 16 series.The Royals will square off with the Tigers on Wednesday night in Kansas City before the three-game set concludes in Omaha, Neb., on Thursday as a prelude to the 2019 College World Series.Cheslor Cuthbert's bloop hit scored the go-ahead run in the bottom of the eighth inning Tuesday."That's the first break we've caught in a while, but I'll take it," Kansas City manager Ned Yost said.The Royals had not won a game all season (0-36) when trailing after six innings prior to Tuesday's victory. It was the team speed that showed up. Adalberto Mondesi started the rally with a one-out hustle double. He scored when Jorge Soler ripped a double down the line.Terrance Gore pinch-ran for Soler, then stole third and scored when Cuthbert dropped a hit between three defenders in short right field.It left Detroit manager Ron Gardenhire wondering what else could go wrong."I guess it's no-man's land," Gardenhire said. "Somebody has to take charge on the ball. With us playing the infield in, it bloops out there. Free Guaranteed Sports Picks. The ball landed, and that was just a break for them." The Royals will be pinning their hopes Wednesday on left-hander Danny Duffy (3-3, 4.68 ERA). Duffy lasted just 2 1/3 innings in his last start, against the Boston Red Sox, after being struck in the right knee by a line drive. He faced six batters in the third, retiring only one, but he was clearly not himself in the inning.The bruise didn't cause him to miss a start, and it didn't cause him to lose his sense of humor. Asked the next day how his knee felt, he said, "Like I was hit by a 109-mile-an-hour fastball." When his skipper asked how his day was going, he responded, "Just fine, I took my dog out for a limp this morning." This will be Duffy's first appearance against the Tigers this season. He is 8-10 with a 4.49 ERA in 25 appearances (22 starts) in his career against Detroit.The Tigers will counter with Daniel Norris (2-5, 4.60 ERA). After starting the season in the bullpen, he allowed three runs in three innings of relief work against Kansas City this season. In his career, he is 1-2 with a 3.99 ERA in 10 appearances vs. the Royals (the previous nine as starts).He has been more effective in Kansas City. In four career starts at Kauffman Stadium, Norris is 1-0 with a 3.63 ERA.In his latest start, he allowed three runs on 11 hits in 5 2/3 innings Thursday against the Tampa Bay Rays. One of those hits was a 427-foot home run by Travis d'Arnaud, the batter's first home run in 14 months. Norris was convinced he had to change his approach."It made me realize I had to come in and just attack them," he said. "It brought the life back on my heater, and I finished strong." --Field Level Media
